Patient-Centered, State-of-the-Art Women’s Healthcare available in Alpharetta, Alpharetta-Roswell and Brought to you by – Modern OBGYN of North Atlanta With no time to be sick, in pain or have surgery, the providers of Modern OBGYN know that educating women with different options for surgery is important. Dr. John Reyes, Dr. Ingrid Reyes, Dr. Natu Mmbaga, Dr. Annie Kim, Dr. Zin Alonso, Dr. Christy Kenkel, Dr. Rachel Prosper, and Dr. Nada Megally understand that one way of helping women in this busy world is through minimally invasive surgical options via robotic surgery and in-office surgical procedures. “There are so many great options for women,” Dr. John Reyes said. “It’s our job to get that information to them and make them aware they don’t need large incisions, long hospital stays, or painful recovery times.” Minimally invasive robotic surgery allows the physicians at Modern OBGYN to operate through just a few small incisions. Featuring a high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist, da Vinci enables them to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control. As the first surgeons to perform da Vinci robotic surgeries at Emory Alpharetta-Roswell Hospital,

da Vinci Robotic Surgery

husband and wife team Dr. Ingrid and Dr. John Reyes know some common issues that can be addressed with robotic surgery are hysterectomies, ovarian cysts, pelvic pain and heavy bleeding. Striving to do their best for the women in the community, Dr. John said, “It’s a blessing to be able to do minimally invasive and robotic surgeries on patients suffering from longstanding issues such as infertility from endometriosis, fibroids, or pelvic adhesive disease.” Established in 2010, Modern OBGYN has three convenient office locations in Alpharetta-Roswell, Alpharetta at Avalon, and the newest office located on the Northside Alpharetta-Roswell campus in Cumming. Along with compassionate care for patients and their needed surgeries, Modern OBGYN strives to give expecting mothers the support they need by making sure that the mothers personally know their provider. Modern OBGYN has a highly experienced team of Certified Nurse Midwives who work alongside each physician to provide well-rounded, patient-centered and personal obstetrical care. You’ll always know us, and we’ll always know you,” Dr. John said. “No surprises when it comes time to deliver!” Dr. John says the best part about building provider-patient relationships is, “We can help them become pregnant, and come full-circle to care for them during their pregnancy and delivery. It’s the full spectrum of caring for what’s so important to a woman’s life—her health and her family.” Modern OBGYN also provides routine annual exams, Pap smears, HPV testing, irregular cycles, menopause and other common women’s issues. The physicians perform robotic surgery at both Emory Alpharetta-Roswell Hospital and Northside Hospital-AlpharettaRoswell.

Thank you

for Voting us Best of North Atlanta 4 Years in a Row!

Alpharetta-Roswell Primary Care focuses on patient-centered medicine & quality Primary Brought to you by – Alpharetta-Roswell Primary Care Alpharetta-Roswell Primary Care is an Internal Medicine practice which specializes in adolescents, adults, and seniors where quality, prevention, and safety are our top priorities. We are honored to be voted the best Internal Medicine practice in North Atlanta for the 4th straight year. Also, this year, we are very proud of our Dietitian being selected as the First Runner Up in the Best Nutritionist/Dietitian category through our OPTIFAST weight loss program and dietitian services. We owe this success to our highly dedicated experienced low turnover staff since we opened in 2001. Over 80% of our staff have been with us 5 years or longer and of those, 33% have been with us 10 years or more. We are very proud of this achievement. Our practice has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for offering high quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology, and coordinated care focused on patients. As a testament to our focus on quality, we were the first practice in the Eastern United States in 2019 to incorporate a new artificial intelligence (AI) program to diagnose significant diabetic retinopathy sooner than most of our ophthalmology colleagues. This FDA approved retinal photo AI read achieves 87% sensitivity and 90% specificity in finding this potentially blinding diabetic eye disease compared to an average of 41% sensitivity with board-certified ophthalmologists. We were also the 2nd practice in the U.S. to start diabetic neuropathy ultrasound treatments for diabetic peripheral neuropathy pain and numbness that has shown amazing results. We offer this service in our Suwanee, Duluth and Gainesville locations. Throughout this COVID-19 pandemic

and subsequent Delta variant, safety for our patients while delivering excellent healthcare has been our passionate goal. We were one of the first primary care practices in our area to adopt car visits and telemedicine visits in mid-March of 2020 to minimize our patient’s exposure to Coronavirus during their visits. All sick patients are evaluated in their car and tested for COVID-19, strep throat, or flu if it is appropriate, or evaluated by a telemedicine visit to avoid the spread to other patients. Only well patients and employees are allowed in our office after they pass a symptom screen. Masks must be worn, even if you are vaccinated and social distancing is enforced. Intensified cleaning protocols are in place. Patients are placed in a private exam room as soon as possible after arrival. Employees wear appropriate personal protection equipment (PPEs) to avoid contracting COVID-19, and employee testing and quarantining is expedited if the need arises. Extended office hours starting at 7:00 AM Monday through Saturday help give our patients the flexibility they need in scheduling appointments. We also offer clinical research opportunities at our location through Herman Clinical Research. Many diagnostic tests are performed in our office, too such as ultrasounds, ECHOs, nuclear stress tests, lung function tests, dementia screenings, and lab draws to increase convenience for our patients. Same day urgent appointments are available. We offer online and portal payments to make it easier for you to pay your statements. All that we do is dedicated to the health and well-being of our patients. Our office is located at 4365 Alpharetta-Roswell Parkway, Ste 400 in Suwanee, Georgia 30024.

Unexpected Happiness: Living a full and happy life at every age and stage Brought to you by – Village Park Cameron Hand of Village Park Senior Living is leading an innovative memory program to empower his team of six residents to continue living life to the fullest. Each year, we are given 365 days to make a difference in the lives of others and in our local community. For Village Park Alpharetta-Roswell Flourish Leader, Cameron Hand, each day is an opportunity to add purpose, connection, and unexpected happiness into the lives of the residents he leads at Village Park. With a positive attitude and a willingness to jump in where needed, Cameron began his Village Park career several years ago at sister community, Village Park Alpharetta. Serving in various roles while earning his degree at Georgia State University, Cameron’s passion and unique ability to build authentic relationships with people of all ages led him to his current role. As a Flourish Leader, Cameron is guiding an innovative Memory Enrichment Program designed to help residents with early stages of memory loss maximize their health, happiness, and independence. Held in small group settings of 10 or less, the Flourish Engage Program is a structured 5-day-aweek program that includes a range of gross motor, therapeutic, nutritional, and social activities both on campus and in the greater Alpharetta community. It intertwines education, art, and social events to keep Flourish Engage members connected. Cameron’s dedication, compassion, and innovative ideas have expanded the Flourish Engage Program’s success, making it a truly life changing experience for residents and their families.

Keeping open communication and involvement with families is especially important to Cameron. Throughout the month, he sends emails with photo albums and descriptions (some of which are pictured here) to Flourish families, keeping them informed of their loved one’s adventures. The daughter of one Flourish member shared her experience when she received the first weekly recap email from Cameron. She said it brought her to tears to see her dad so happy and surrounded by friends, especially when he had been so withdrawn prior to joining the program. She looks forward to each and every update. While the program was originally designed for individuals who are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, residents from the entire Village Park community have embraced the program. Cameron shared how Flourish Engage has expanded into something that everybody wants to join, “I feel like it is growing into something for all people who need something more to do or people that need more encouragement to participate in activities.” Cameron is often seen in the morning encouraging residents to come together for new adventures, singa-longs, or a simple walk through the community. His regular Flourish team of six residents look forward to the new adventures each day holds. Cameron’s daily activities, conversations, and support provides Flourish Engage members with a constant friend. The intergenerational friendships formed between Cameron and members of the Flourish crew have generated countless heartwarming moments. While they are multiple generations apart, the relationship

has built a bridge between current technologies and songs of the past for daily sing-a-longs as they drive to their next destination. “Early on, I bought a FM transmitter that allows me to play music through my phone and onto the bus,” Cameron shares. “One of my favorite moments is when I play old music and everyone on the bus sings along to the songs.” It’s ideas and moments like this that have built lasting impressions. Art workshops, dancing sessions, and friendships have improved mental and physical wellness among residents at Village Park Senior Living. Learn more about the Flourish Engage Program by giving us a call at (470) 509-4557. Be sure to stay up to date with Cameron, the Flourish crew’s adventures and the rest of the happenings by following us on social media at @VillageParkSeniorLiving. We look forward to seeing you!

We are honored! Best Medical Weight Loss in North Atlanta Brought to you by – Elvina Vitkin, M.D. Our program has been developed for safe and effective weight reduction and control. Most people who come to our program have already tried “everything”. What makes weight loss such a difficult and, for many people, next to an impossible task? There is no simple answer as we do not completely understand the cause and progress of a chronic condition known as obesity. The fact is that only for some people, being overweight is simply a result of overeating. For these “fortunate” few, readjustments of caloric intake and/or an increase of physical activity (energy spending) will solve the problem. However, for most people, overweight problems arise without their “help.” Complex genetic factors, metabolic, physiological and biological changes eventually determine each person’s tendency to become overweight or stay slim. Therefore, the weight loss and the maintenance programs should never be taken “lightly.” You are dealing with a chronic

condition. There is no such thing as a seven-day diet, a 30-day diet, a 24-hour diet, etc. Fortunately, for most, weight loss can be accomplished! We take great pride in offering outstanding care and service to our patients. We are honored by your support of our practice. 631 North Main Street, Suite 203, Alpharetta, GA 30009 www.drvitkin.com | 770.664.0803 | drvitkin@drvitkin.com

Thank you for voting us one of the Best Dental Practices in North Atlanta Brought to you by – North Fulton Smiles Once again, this year, we are honored and grateful to be selected and voted among the Best of North Atlanta. The North Atlanta community is an enriched, talented, skilled, dedicated and thriving community and we are ecstatic to continue our tenure within this community. Our sincere Thank you to all that voted for us and continue to support and believe in our work and dedication to our community. As we all re-opened and returned to work, at North Fulton Smiles, we made it a priority to welcome our patients back with excitement and fervor rather than fear. And we were thoroughly touched by our patients’ graciousness, willingness to return and concern for our providers. In my years of practice, I have never seen this much joy from our patients to come to the dentist! The dental community of professionals and patients we had created throughout

the years of this practice SHOWED UP for US! We saw a truly human part of our patients—the side that was grateful for us, for the safety measures we took, for the lighter side of our office personality…. for the human connection that we cherish with our patients. We continue to deliver the highest quality of care to our great patients using technology, techniques and “hightouch” so that we can customize out treatment for our patients and exceed their expectations. And while we still navigate through the ebbs and flows of the pandemic, we rely on our wonderful patients to support us as equally as we care for them. For this, we at North Fulton Smiles are the most grateful and blessed. As our community grows, we continue to welcome warm smiles and the opportunity to care for you, your friends and family members with the high-tech and high-touch approach for which we are known. We invite you to experience dentistry through our care!

We provide full-service general and cosmetic dentistry for our valued patients and measure our success in our ability to always exceed your expectations.

Home Helpers of North Atlanta wins for the 5th time as Best Home Care for Seniors! Brought to you by – Home Helpers of North Atlanta Home Helpers of Alpharetta and North Atlanta Suburbs is honored to once again be voted the Best Home Care for Seniors in North Atlanta. Thank you to everyone who voted for us! “Winning for the fifth year in a row in these continually challenging times makes this so rewarding“ say Hilary and Greg Eldridge. “The importance of being able to age in place wherever you call home, whether it’s in a private house, assisted living community, apartment setting or even receiving additional assistance in a health facility as you recuperate, can bring true peace of mind that is so valued by our clients and their families. We want to

make our knowledge and experience a true asset for them.” Being able to help families navigate their unique care needs quickly and deliver quality care management requires hands on attention to detail by a team with depth and skill. While it starts with matching a heart centered caregiver to each client, there’s also a care management liaison who provides a critical link as needs arise. The ability to address questions and concerns in real time is so important. Our commitment to proactive care management helps us recognize changes in our clients and work with them and their families to offer solutions and ideas before issues become critical. In the midst of COVID-19, extensive training in infection control and the use of Per-

sonal Protective Equipment (PPE) helps our skilled caregivers elevate hands on care management to a new level. The main underpinning of a successful care relationship is mutual respect. We respect our clients and listen to their needs, to continually fine tune and deliver a personalized approach that is so important in order to deliver great care. Our clients appreciate the professionalism and dedication of our wonderful caregivers and team, who face each day with the goal of making each day the best it can be. It’s comforting to know that we’re with our clients on their journey as needs change, ready to help navigate new challenges. Hilary and Greg built this business as a tribute to Hilary’s father and set out ten years ago to raise the bar for

in-home care. “I saw what a difference truly personalized care made for my Dad and strive to provide the kind of care he’d be proud to have inspired”, says Hilary. “I always use his memory as a touchstone to make sure that even in the midst of change we engage the spirit of our clients as we honor the richness of their lives.” We’re here to help - from eight hours a day, several days a week to 24/7 and live-in care. A Home Helpers caregiver has the skills to assist with all personal care, help around the house, safely speed up recovery from surgery, or provide specialized care for Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s, etc. For a free consultation please call Home Helpers of Alpharetta and North Atlanta Suburbs at (770) 681-0323.

You are appreciated Food: more than you know

Continued from Page 20

Brought to you by – The Original Pancake House To our valued customers. We appreciate you more than you know. Getting through the last year and a half has proven to be one of the most challenging times for, not only us, but for every restaurant out there. We are still facing huge challenges today, especially with staffing and increases in costs, but it is thanks to our loyal clientele that we are surviving these trying times. Your

loyal patronage is the only thing that has been constant over, what we could label as, the worst restaurant year that any of us have seen in our lifetimes. We will continue to do our absolute best to continue to provide you with the BEST Breakfast in North Atlanta. We are proud of what we do. We are proud that you consider us the best. We will continue to live up to that standard and we would like to thank you again for your unwavering support.

THANK YOU for supporting our new-concept MODERN FRAGRANCE BAR! Brought to you by – IndieHouse We are a local Alpharetta family who concepted and created this store out of a desire to bring exclusive fragrances and community-building experiences to Atlanta. At INDIEHOUSE, we already know that you are an interesting person to be around. If you weren’t, you’d be shopping with everyone else at the mall. But for you to communicate that you are different to other people, you need a unique fragrance that represents who you are. The problem is, there are too many choices and the differences are unclear, which makes you feel overwhelmed and uninspired. We believe it should be easy to find a unique scent. We understand that you don’t want to be like everyone else, which is why we sniffed hundreds of fragrances to bring you over 45 imported & niche brands, exclusive to us here in Atlanta, while staying true to our clean standards. Find yours on our website or in our store. Or come join us at a workshop to create your own. WORKSHOPS A great opportunity to meet some new people or get together with friends and family. You can bring wine and cheese/desserts to “sip & snack” while learning about fragrance. Then you build a scent from scratch and leave with a travel-size bottle. If you have a small group of 6 or more (up to 12) you can book a private event. Perfect for Wedding Showers, Teambuilding/Employee Appreciation, and Special Occasions.

Premier Dermatology – Providing excellence. Every patient. Every time. Brought to you by - Dr. Brent Taylor, Premier Dermatology and Mohs Surgery of Atlanta Congratulations to Premier Dermatology and Mohs surgery of Atlanta for its fourth year in a row of being voted Best Dermatologist and Best Vein Specialist of North Fulton! Since opening in 2017, Premier Dermatology has quickly become the goto dermatology practice for quality and comprehensive dermatologic care. As in years past, I decided to sit down with Dr. Brent Taylor and Kathryn Filipek, PA-C to get their take on their success and to learn a bit more about them. Alyssa: Hey you two! Thanks for meeting with me again. Winning the Best Dermatologist and Best Vein specialist for four years in a row means you must be doing something right! To what do you contribute your continued success? Dr. Taylor: Thank you! Well, I believe that my patients understand our sincerity and our dedication to their healthcare. Kathryn and I and our amazing team all honestly care about our patients and their well-being. I hope that that sincerity comes through during our interactions. We always strive to give our patients our complete attention and to learn more about an individual as a person as well as a patient. There are plenty of times when a patient brings something to our attention or when a case compels us to do additional research. Kathryn and I are constantly collaborating and advocating on our patients’ behalf. I believe that comes through. Kathryn: I agree with everything that Dr. Taylor said, our team really is wonderful. And we have received a lot of compliments that the practice has a personal and “boutique” feel, even as we deliver care that is scientific and academic. Alyssa: Dr. Taylor we all know that you are a board-certified dermatologist, and a fellowship trained Mohs surgeon. There is no doubt of your ability to skillfully handle dermatology and skin cancer patients. How many surgeries have you performed now? Dr. Taylor: Oh, probably over 10,000, but more important than the number is the type of cases that we are treating. I believe that we are one of the only practices in the state of Georgia that performs true Mohs surgery for melanoma on the face. Many of the surgeries that we perform are truly lifesaving, and I am proud of the type of work that we perform. Alyssa: How does varicose vein treatment fit into your practice and what advancements did Kathryn Filipek bring? Dr. Taylor: We are beyond grateful for the addition of Kathryn! She really is a fantastic and knowledgeable provider. Most importantly, our skillsets really

complement one another. For example, my focus in the vein clinic portion of our practice is on treating venous disease that results in leg swelling or pain, and Kathryn has years of experience performing aesthetically-focused cosmetic sclerotherapy. She brought PRP for hair rejuvenation to the practice as well as chemical peels and is a truly outstanding injector of Botox® and cosmetic fillers. The addition of another provider also means that we are frequently able to accommodate patients for same day or next day appointments. Alyssa: Well, I think that will help our readers understand more of what helps you both win Best Of year after year. But, as is now tradition, I thought we could ask a few casual questions to allow your readers get to know you both a little better. When you started working at Premier Dermatology, what surprised you? Brent: The administrative side of running a practice was more complicated than I had anticipated. I was not wearing rose-tinted glasses when we opened, but electronic medical records, government reporting, and the insurance-side of medicine all were more challenging than I expected. I want to thank all the patients who put up with the hiccups in the first two years for their understanding as we were working out some of the kinks. Kathryn: Prior to joining Premier Dermatology in early 2020, I had spent almost 19 years working in larger dermatology practice settings. In starting here, I was pleasantly surprised by the “family” feel of the practice and not only how close the staff were to each other, but how close some of the patients were to my current coworkers. It is comforting to be a part of a true “work family.” What are your pet peeves? Brent: I think most of my pet peeves involve reckless or aggressive driving. On the road, people all too often act like they see cars as obstacles rather than as fellow travelers. Kathryn: Expecting instant gratification without the willingness to do the work. I believe hard work is often necessary to achieve your goals. This is something I tell my kids about homework and good grades, as well as my patients who often require a regular routine to maintain or improve their skin conditions. If your childhood had a smell, what would it have been? Brent: Blueberry pie and fresh cut grass. My grandfather had a blueberry and Christmas tree farm and my mom is a fantastic baker. I am beyond lucky to have been able to play outside all day, explore the farm, catch various critters

then come inside to homemade desserts. I had a fantastic childhood. Kathryn: Basically, the outdoors in Michigan. Nose-closing crisp air in the winter, water (from the snow melting) in the spring, fresh grass and dirt or sap on my hands as a kid, and leaves in the fall (which basically ended in September for me.) What is the most ridiculous outfit you’ve ever worn? Brent: I once won a Halloween contest by dressing up as a bag of Jelly Belly jellybeans. My neighborhood Costco gave me a huge clear plastic bag, and I punched holes in it for my arms and legs and filled it up with dozens of different color balloons then taped a Jelly Belly logo across it. My costume was the hit of the party, and nobody could get past me because I was seven feet wide. Kathryn: Anything in the 80’s. Don’t even ask about my hairstyle. Perms rocked! Lastly, if you could tell your 16-yearold self something, what would it be? Brent: To not put too much stock in

timelines. I was raised very traditionally, and I thought that I was going to meet my wife in college, get married right after we graduated then start a family a few years later, and it made me worried when I hadn’t met the right person by the time that I expected. My advice to the teenage me would be to just pour yourself into positive and worthwhile activities and that the result would be becoming who you are supposed to and meeting who you are supposed to all in its own time. Kathryn: Stop stressing. You’ll make it happen. I was so focused on my future, worrying about not achieving my goals, and how I was going to put myself through school that I didn’t stop to enjoy being 16. In hindsight, I realize that having a bit more faith would have gotten me to the same endpoint without all of the pressure I put on myself. Thank you to Dr. Brent Taylor and Kathryn Filipek for sharing a little more about themselves and congratulations again for winning both Best Dermatologist and Best Vein Specialist in North Fulton for 2021!

We are now back on the field and moving forward with great diligence while providing a critical support service for the youth of North Atlanta. Our goal is to continue serving our community for many years to come. We will strive to offer the best in youth soccer and continue to offer a safe and healthy environment for our players to grow on and off the field.

Best Beverage/ Wine Store

Thank you for voting us backto-back Best Beverage/Wine Store in North Atlanta! Brought to you by – Deep Roots The votes are in and once again Deep Roots wins Best Beverage/Wine Store of North Atlanta! Why are we the best you ask? Deep Roots is a Wine Market & Tasting Room featuring domestic wines located in Historic Roswell. Guests can enjoy a self-service tasting tour of wine country using our WineStation machines while browsing a broad selection of retail wines and merchandise. Sip by the taste, by the glass or by the bottle(s)! Our tasting room, bar and lounge seating has a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere. With 32 wines available to taste via smart card operated Napa Technology WineStation machines and over 300 different wines in stock, you will never run out of new wines to experience. Craft beer is also offered on tap and sparkling wines are available by the glass. You may be wondering how this

trendy wine bar came about. Owner Dana Gurela developed a passion for wine after her first visit to Napa in 2009. When Dana and husband Todd moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2012, she turned that passion into an obsession. After living in California for five years, Gurela knew it was time to return home to her family in Georgia, but not without bringing a little piece of wine country with her. The name Deep Roots recognizes the vines’ struggle to survive in the vineyard and the connection to family here in Georgia. One of our greatest attributes is our staff. We are one big happy family and that truly shines through in the way we treat our customers. We feel so blessed to be able to work with such an amazing group of folks every day. THANK YOU, Deep Roots staff and loyal customers, for making us the Best Beverage/Wine Store of North Atlanta for two years in a row! Without you, it would not have been possible.

Rampino honored to be voted Best Bartender in North Atlanta Brought to you by – Mercantile Social Joe Rampino grew up in Tonawanda, NY, a small town outside of Buffalo. He had dreams of leaving as a young kid to pursue his interests in the Arts. Moving to Los Angeles at the age of 23, he got involved in the entertainment world engaging in the Fine arts, Photography and Acting in California. While he was exploring these crafts, he would pay the bills by bartending. As an artist by nature, he found that bartending is a great creative outlet and creating the “Wow Factor” that people enjoy in craft cocktails quickly became his passion. Moving to Alpharetta six years ago proved to be a great decision after meeting Chef Francois Duquette at Flatlands Bourbon and Bayou. With Chef’s approval, the owners of Flatlands, Jodi, Courtney and Vinny Chieco, hired Joe to concept the bar program and open the new Cajun-style restaurant in 2016. Joe says, “Teaming up with Chef Francois and the Chieco Family was a perfect match to start my cocktail creations in a full-service restaurant. They gave me creative freedom to do what I wanted with the drink menu.” Two years later, after Flatlands’ success, the old Mercantile building located at 20 N. Main St. in Alpharetta became

available to rent. With the team already in place, they decided to start a new venture to showcase their great food and exciting cocktails in an old historic building. They called it Mercantile Social,

which opened in August of 2018. They have been thriving in the newly developed downtown Alpharetta business district ever since. Joe added, “It’s great to be part of this incredible community and see

it grow throughout the past few years.” The most exciting thing about this business is that they do seasonal themes throughout the year. Stop by and see what’s going on!

Trust. Experience. Results. Brought to you by - The Jenny Doyle Group – Atlanta Fine homes Sotheby’s International Realty

Benefits of using a REALTOR® when going through the home buying and selling process Brought to you by –BILL RAWLINGS, Senior Vice President & Managing Broker, North Atlanta Office Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International RAWLINGS Realty is honored to have been chosen as the 2021 Best Real Estate Brokerage of North Atlanta by APPEN Media Group for the sixth year in a row! We pride ourselves on creating relationships with our clients and successfully helping them find the homes of their dreams. Our focus is on our clients, as we provide million-dollar marketing for homes in all price ranges and believe that service defines the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand, not price point. There are numerous benefits to using an agent when you are in the market to buy a new home, as this can be a stressful and intimidating process. Having a licensed professional to help walk you through the buying process can help to relieve the pressure and make your experience more enjoyable. Especially for a first-time home buyer, an agent will be by your side to answer your questions and concerns and prepare you for potential obstacles that may arise while professionally marketing your home to prospective buyers. Finding the right home for you: Once you determine what you are looking for, the next step will be for your REALTOR® to book appointments and walk you through potential homes. These appointments can help narrow down your criteria and determine what you truly desire

in a home. Your REALTOR® will have the knowledge to explain the area, neighborhoods, schools and valuable information you will need to know before making a final decision to purchase a home. Negotiating an offer: Your agent will advise you on an acceptable offer price, while also helping you to negotiate a deal that could save you money. This is such a crucial part of buying a home, and it allows your REALTOR® to use their expertise in the negotiation process. Professional recommendations: There are so many aspects to buying a home and professional resources are always needed. Agents make suggestions on reliable sources they have used in the past, from a trustworthy mortgage broker to home inspectors – just another way a real estate agent can help to relieve stress during the process of finding a new home. Overcoming obstacles: During the due-diligence period, new issues can arise and a real estate professional can help counsel you toward a solution. This is a time when negotiation is key and it is extremely helpful to have someone on your side who is knowledgeable, experienced, calm and in control, should a situation occur. Please keep Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty in mind next time you are in the market to buy a new home. Our trained sales professionals are the perfect guides to walk you through the buying and selling process. Visit AtlantaFineHomes.com or call our office at 770.442.7300 to allow one of our dedicated professionals assist you today. Article is adapted from: http://www. realtor.com/advice/buy/what-is-a-buyers-agent-used-for/

Thanks for voting us Best Realtor Group in North Atlanta! When having someone help you with such a financial and emotional investment as your home, at the simplest level, you want to hire someone who cares. You want to know that your best interest is always considered throughout the process from start to finish. On the listing side of things, it is extremely important to have the best marketing possible to know you are getting the absolute highest price possible for your home. You want to have proper feedback on your showings and know your agent is always following up properly with each call and after all showings of your home. You want an agent that will sweep your porch after a storm or walk your dog if you are stuck at work- most times, it is the simple things that have the most impact. Myself and my team take pride in these things that can make the difference. Our team logo for many years was “We live in the details” as I feel strongly that it is the small details, added up, that have the most impact. Experience. Experience is what makes the difference of a home selling or not with proper marketing. It is also what makes the difference in a home closing once you go under contract. Navigating the contract to close process with ease and being able to overcome hurdles or push back is a large area where experience comes into play. There are hundreds of possible setbacks in the contract to close process and having an agent that has dealt with them all, helps you to set the scene to avoid these setbacks as well as make the proper decisions and moves to overcome them as they arise. This can come in the format of meeting an appraiser and knowing what to bring and how to talk to them to having the right trusted and time-tested vendors come out during your inspection period. Selling your home or buying your home should be a time of excitement, not stress. It is my job to assure that you feel this way. Results. Results covers a broad umbrella as in 20 years of real estate, I have tweaked my process and my team to be sure that my clients have the best possible results on both the buying and selling side.

​​I will begin with the most overlooked but most important part of results- agent to agent relationships. When selling your home, 89% of the time another agent than yours brings the buyer to your home. This number is huge and shows the importance of your agent being fully connected as well as in a positive light in the realtor community. This does not happen overnight. With each area of town that I am working, I have strong relationships that have been developed over 20 years of helping one another. On the listing side of things, you want an agent that other agents see their name and want to show the listing as they know the process will be a smooth one for their own client. On the buying end of things, I assure that you do not miss out on a great house as the good ones go in a day or even off-market so staying connected is extremely important. This is also the difference many times of my clients being chosen as the buyer on a home during a multiple offer situation. This agent intercommunication is one of the many reasons that I joined Atlanta Fine Homes. We are the #1 office in volume in all of North Atlanta. Each week, we have word of new upcoming listings and the ever-changing market conditions and commercial/residential growth in each area. With assuring this connection into the agent community, I know that my clients have not missed any possible opportunity in the marketplace. c. 404.840.7354 | o. 770.442.7300 jennydoyle.com

A home is a sanctuary, a retreat, their personal haven for those that live there. We take that seriously, creating projects that are as individual and unique as each client. Each home should, not only beautiful, but highly functional and age gracefully. Our client focused approach, personalized service and ability to weave modern elegance into traditional spaces allows for functional daily living for today’s busy families. In order to make each Kat Nelson Design project unique, it is essential to merge the personality of the space, the needs of the client with current design. Kat Nelson Designs has more than 15 years of experience as a full- service design firm based in Atlanta. Our projects range from West to East coast with many repeat clients. Testimonials – Kat Nelson Designs Kat Nelson Designs aesthetic elevates and compliments our family style. Her creative eye is uniquely layered seeing more than I could ever. With Kat’s help, I will not have to live with costly mistakes (from lighting to paint choices) ever again. I can’t wait to work with her again! I have used Kat Nelson Designs several times over the past several years in different capacities and the results have always been spectacular, classy and timeless. Kat has the ability to understand the look and style of her client and make recommendations accordingly. She is very versatile and can assist in all types of décor - traditional, modern, eclectic, etc. Kat is excellent with colors and finding unusual fabrics that make the room unique. She also is fantastic with lighting, rugs, and furniture pieces that you don’t see everywhere. She recently helped me with the exterior paint of our house and I could not be more happy, especially since this decision will be with our family for some time. The entire design experience is professional and personal in every way. I would trust her with any design needs and hope to use her for my next project. www.katnelsondesigns.com
